William Forsythe is among my favorite character actors and this is his single best performance. He plays Gacy as much more intelligent than I think the man truly was, and he shows how a good manipulator can sell you on your own death even if you KNOW that is his goal. Ignorance of these types of crimes isn't a healthy option as the film suggests if only for the general well-being of the public.
